IMPROVEMENT IN LANTERNS.4
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 174,56l dated March 7, 1876; application filed which yitappertains to make and use the same,
reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon, which forma part of this specification.
lVIy invention relates to lanterns, and has for its main object to hold the globe or chim ney firmly and securelyT in position. To this end the -nature of my invention consists in forming the upper band of the lantern in two parts, one part being stationary and the other movable, and providing the movable part with a flanged collar having interior screw-threads and a perforated disk, with thumb-pieces placed within said collar, to be screwed down upon the top edge of the globe or chimney.
In the annexed drawing, Figure l is a side elevation. Fig. 2 is a plan view with top'removed. Fig.. 3 is a partial central vertical section ot' same. Fig. 4 is a modification.
A represents the base of the lantern, to which the lamp B is secured in any of the Around the base of the lamp B is a rim or collar, C, projecting from the base A, which rim is formed with interior screw-threads.
rIhe body of the lantern is formed, in the usual manner, of a top and bottom band, connected by wires. The bottom band Dis formed with a down ward-projectin g collar, D, which screws into 'the rim or collar C of the base, thus forming not-only a convenient means for uniting the base and body of the lantern, but one which is durable and not liable to become accidentally separated, and yet isl easily disconnected when desired.
The top band of the lantern-body is made in two parts, G and G', as shown. The part G is connected with the bottom band D by February 12, 1876.
means of the usual bent wires or rods a a, and these are connected by a horizontal wire, b, in circular form, in the ordinary manner. The movable part G of the top band has two wires or rods, d d, attached to it, the lower ends ot' which are looped around the horizontal wire b, so as to both turn and slide therein. Short wires e e connect the bottom band D with the wire b, to correspond with vided with screw-threads, in which is placed Y a disk, J, cut with openings, having the metal turned np to form thumb-pieces K K, by means of which the disk is screwed down onto the upper edge ot' the globe I. The top band G G is held together by the reflector L, placed around the same, and the top M is then fastened on said band by an ordinary bayonet-lock and spring-catch, or other suitable means.
When desired to take out the globe, the top and retlector are taken oil', the disk screwed up, and then the movable part of the band, with the collar,.sprung outward from ,the stationary part, the wires d turning for a certain distance only on the wire b, when said wires are moved sidewise on the wire b, to get the part G', with the collar H, out of the way. This lateral movement is only necessary when the part G is connected by two wires with the wire b.
When only one connecting-wire is used, as
shown in Fig. 4t, this wire acts as a hinge and turns entirely out of the way, doing away with any lateral movement. A
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. The combination of the bisected top band G G', the female screw-collar H, and In testimony that I claim the foregoing as disk J, with thumb-pieces K K, substantially myv own I affix my signature in presen-ce of as and for the purposes herein set forth. two witnesses.
2. The movable part G of the biseet-ed top band of a 1antern-body, connected by one THEODORE B' OSBORNE' or more wires, d, with the horizontal wire b of Y Witnesses: vthe surrounding frame, as and for the purposes CEAS. D. WHITALL,
herein set forth. S. B. UNDERHILL.
